One more time...going gray does not mean letting ourselves go!
We Silver Foxes know the difference between “going gray” and “letting ourselves go.” However, it has come to my attention recently that a lot of people still don’t seem to understand why “choosing to go gray” is not necessarily synonymous with “giving up.”
And I say to those people…have you looked at us lately? Because when I look around at all of my silver-haired friends, I see happy, confident, energetic, attractive, healthy, well-dressed, well-groomed, intelligent, and joyful ladies and gentlemen who are living life to the fullest. Not a slacker in the bunch. We care about our appearance. Isn’t that obvious?
However, there is more to life than spending all of our time and money trying to look the way we did twenty years ago. We are smoking’ right now…just the way we are!
But don’t think that we don’t work at it. We eat healthy, workout, do yoga, zumba and pilates, choose clothing that is becoming, comfortable, and expresses our personality, and use natural, non-toxic beauty products when we can find them. (beauty industry, listen up!) We may not be dying our hair, but we are certainly not letting ourselves go!
Get on the program, guys! Gray hair does NOT mean giving up!
